The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation set up to promote the education of the public in the art and science of photography. We stage exhibitions that are free to enter and that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into photographic galleries. Exhibitions comprise large scale photographs together with technical data, information about the photographic theme, boards containing inspirational quotes and boards containing hints and tips on photography. Professional, student and amateur photographers submit their work for possible inclusion in one of our travelling exhibitions, which are curated by our Head of Design. The work that we do offers the public a chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, a profession, or simply a pastime.

Creativity is back this quarter and will be starting it’s tour in Manchester.

Come along to St James’s House in Charlotte Street from Wednesday 31st October to Sunday 4th November, open daily from 10am to 3pm.

The images in this exhibition reflect a wide range of photographic subjects, however, they all capture and celebrate the individual photographer’s personal creative flair.

Come along to see for yourself!

Competition - The Great Outdoors

Our latest competition is now open for entries, and closes on 31st October at midnight (GMT)

It has been shown time and time again that spending time outdoors is good for our health. Scientists have proven that nature not only encourages physical exercise and increases social interaction, but can even provide stress relief and help soothe mental illness.

Photography is one pursuit that allows us to combine technology with being in our natural environment. Taking photographs of your time outside can be exciting, cathartic, relaxing or exhilarating.

We want you to capture your countryside capers and outdoor adventures. Think mountaineering, hiking, rambling, climbing, caving and kite flying. Or maybe sailing, canoeing and paddle boarding is more your kind of thing.

For those who prefer a more relaxing experience, maybe you can capture the serenity of the great outdoors through your images of picnics, camping, foraging, fishing, cycling or bird watching.

Feedback Monochrome

Very interesting photos. Some of the landscapes you could feel the colour, even though they were black and white.

A huge clue to one of the themes coming up next quarter!

I enjoyed the exhibition very much. The theme was of personal interest and the photos were stunning. Thank you to all involved with creating such a great exhibition.

Our submission process has changed

Anyone who has submitted work to be included in one of our catalogues in the past, would have done this via a submissions page link. However, due to an overwhelming and fantastic response to our competitions, TPA have decided to curate its catalogues from the best of our competition entrants. The quality of work submitted to competitions over the years has been outstanding hence the decision to merge the two.

In short, anyone interested in having their work displayed at our venues should enter our competitions instead. The favourites will be contacted in due course throughout the year as and when a new catalogue print is scheduled. Please view our competitions page for further details.

All Exhibitions are free to enter!

This is just a little reminder that all of our photography exhibitions are free to have a look around. We welcome group visits from schools, colleges and universities and will do whatever we can, to ensure that students gain the most from their experience. Please email or give us a call on 0800 028 7338 to discuss this further.
